United Negro College Fund Annual Walk for Education - Chicago

Saturday, September 18, 2010

For 66 years, The United Negro College Fund has provided financial and technical assistance to historically black colleges and universities. Without UNCF’s support, many of the students at these colleges would not have access to higher education or the benefits that it provides.  As a proud second generation graduate of Southern University and A&M College, my parents and I greatly benefited from the support of UNCF. 

Ask your friends, family and co-workers to sponsor your walk or to make a donation to the Top Ladies of Distinction – Lincoln Park Chicago Chapter (TLOD/LPCC) team.   Your participation/support in the Walk for Education supports more than 60,000 students a year, builds a more diverse workforce, and strengthens our community.

The 27th Annual Walk for Education will take place on September 18, 2010 in Burnham Park, Lake Shore at 31st Street. This year's Walk for Education promises to be our most successful as we strive to reach our goal of raising $300,000! (Children under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult.)  For more information about this event, please visit the UNCF Walk for Education homepage at:   UNCF Walk for Education Homepage and donate today!
